Friends and readers, I’m calling on your skills and expertise to help me. I’m working on a bit of a side project and I need you to help me brainstorm a little.
I’m looking for novels that are based on the lives of real life, historical people set in the early 20th century. Circling The Sun by Paula McLain is exactly the type of book I’m looking for. So far I’ve gathered this list. What can you add to it?

Local Customs by Audrey Thomas
Under the Wide and Starry Sky by Nancy Horan
Loving Frank by Nancy Horan
The Visitors by Sally Beauman
Mrs. Hemingway by Naomi Wood
